The celebration of the Bicentennial has
excited the entire nation, and has touched the
Gannon campus. The campus was decorated
with red, white and blue fire hydrants, and the
Library was decorated with several displays
of the nation's state flags. The color guard
dressed their best for their bicentennial
salute, and the Pershing Rifle's displayed an
outstanding rifle performance to the public.
The entire college united in special ways
to celebrate 1976 - America's 200th Birthday.

The Gannon Community comes together
One of the largest and ever-expanding programs at
Gannon is the student work study service. The total com-
pensation paid to the students has quadrupled over the
last decade, and in the past year has jumped over one
hundred thousand dollars.
The program provides both off-campus and on-
campus jobs for students, in coordination with their par-
ticular educational interests. Recently, under the direc-
torship of Mr. Treiber. they have expanded the program
to aid students in finding jobs over the summer in their
respective home towns.
With the growth in Gannon's enrollment and the
corresponding influx of dorm students, more and more
upperclassmen are leaving the campus and com-
muting. Apartment living has become the answer to
Gannon's housing shortage. With it go the usual
problems of cooking, cleaning, and transportation.
Out of the growing concern of commuters with
their own special problems has developed Gannon's
first commuter organization. The organization was
founded to solve the problems pertinent to commuters,
such as better lounge facilities and parking. The
organization has acquired new furniture for the lounge
in Beyer and a commuter parking plan. It hopes to
sponsor social activities to bring more commuters into
the Gannon social scene.

With Gannon's enrollment taking such a
large jump these past few years, student liv-
ing has also been rapidly changing and grow-
ing. Finegan Hall is now being slowly taken
over by women residents. They have taken
possession of six of the eight floors at
Finegan, and are pushing the male residents
back into Wehrle Hall.
The remodeled lounges, the new and
larger washing facilities, and the creation of a
Chaplain's room have given the dorms a new
look. Finegan, along with Wehrle, are now
sponsoring activities such as beer blasts, and
participating in intramural events.
With the new improved facilities and the
expanded social activities, dorm living is un-
ifying the Gannon Community.

SPRING FEVER - IT'S HOT!
The Student Senate is responsible
for representing the needs of the Gannon
students to the college officials. They
fulfill the students needs by sponsoring
social activities, financing campus
events, and participating in financial
decisions of the college.
This year the Student Senate
presented the Broadway Musical,
"Grease," the Halloween Mixer, and the
annual social dances.

THE GANNON THEATER-A SMART,
The Gannon Theater is looking better than ever.
Out front, it sports a brand new sign. But the real
changes are inside. The theater has acquired new
seats, a new paint job, refinished floors, and new
carpeting. The walls are a rich brown with beautiful
and colorful carpet to match.
In this new setting, the Gannon Theater has
produced four shows: Camino Real, The Mousetrap,
Abelard & Heloise, and a new show by R. Michael
Morris, Lip Service.
The shows: all above standard for acting and
The many glamour stars of Lip Service.
This year's Model U.N. was the twenty-third in Gannon's history.
The Chairwoman for the General Assembly this year was the second
woman to be Head of the General Assembly, Debi Dubik (very ap-
propriate since it was International Women's Year). The Model U.N.'s
guest speaker for the 1976 activities was Dr. Noel Brown. And the
General Assembly was expanded to include John Byran. director of the
U.N. We Believe office in New York City.
The topics chosen for discussion this year were:
1. Women's Rights
2. Challenge to South Africa's Membership
3. Mid-East Crisis
4. Demand For A New Economic Order
Alpha Kappa Psi is a fraternity based on
professionalism. The brothers of AKPsi aim
toward professionalism in the marketing, bank-
ing and business field. They are Gannon's only
Business Fraternity, and are responsible for
bringing guest speakers and business recruiters
to the college.
But the brothers of AKPsi are not always
into serious business. Some of their more casual
and relaxed moods include weekend parties, and
the annual end of the year picnic.

The Alpha Phi Delta Social Fraternity,
known to most of Gannon as the A.P.D.'s, are but
a small but very active organization. From their
tiny beginnings in 1957, they have grown into a
very vital part of Gannon's Community.
This year headed by Frank Scutella, they
have sponsored the fifteenth annual spaghetti
dinner, the second annual Halloween party for
the children at the Gertrude Barber Center, and
the fifth annual Spring Concert.

PI KAPPA ALPHA
Extensive involvement in campus and community affairs
highlighted Pi Kappa Alpha's fourteenth year on Gannons cam-
pus. They sponsor many community projects, such as a mixer to
raise money for the March of Dimes. They also collected on cam-
pus for the United Way and distributed cans for the American
Cancer Society. As usual, they also put out the Gannon blotter.
Pikes started a new project this year. Operation ident. It was
carried out in conjunction with the Erie Police to protect Erie

ST. MARK'S SEMINARY
Contrary to popular belief that Seminarians are banished from a fun life - St.
Mark's Seminarians live it up! The Seminarians are active not only religiously, but
socially and athletically.
This year. St. Mark's Seminary took tops in Intra-mural Basketball. Socially, the
Seminarians are involved in volunteer work at local hospitals. And of course, all the
Seminarians participate in religious functions, lectures, retreats, and prayer

The Pershing Rifles were more than outstanding in their
drills and presentations this year — they were the best. And
they proved it too. This event was the Manhattan College In-
vitational Drill Meet. It was the final meet of the season for

THE FAMOUS F.B.'S
taking it easy'
The F.B.'s have been an active off-campus
organization for the last seven years. As it states
in the F.B. Constitution - 'it is our goal to strive
for excellence in the academic field as well as on
the intramural playing fields at Gannon'. Besides
vocally backing the varsity teams at Gannon, the
F.B.'s fielded winning intramural teams in every
sport they participated in. But the F.B.'s are
primarily a social club. Their Spring Weekend
almost featured Blues Guitarist, J. J. Cale. And
their second annual picnic at Shades Beach was

THE TOADS A.C.
The Toads are a new kind of fraternity.
Organized within the Intramural programs, The
Toads Athletic Club was shortened to "The Toads".
Whatever their known as. they're a fun-loving
good-time group. They organize themselves as they
did their strategies in all Intra-mural activities.
The Toad nest, located on ninth street, was a
scene for many Toad gatherings. And whenever there
were Toads, there were Toadettes.

MEMBERS UNITE FRATERNITIES
The Inter-Fraternity Council of Gannon College works to unite
the campus fraternities. Members from each fraternity meet regularly
to discuss fraternity and campus problems and events. The council
also sponsors several events on campus. The yearly I.F.C. Casino
Night is always a success and profit to all fraternities, along with the
fall Road Rally - which offers the winner fifty gallons of free gasoline.
NICE WINTER FOR SKI CLUB
The Gannon Ski Club enjoyed the snowy winter on the slopes of
Peek n' Peak. The club offers discount rates for season passes, lifts
passes, and skiing lessons. Bus transportation to the Peak is also
provided by the club for its members. This year's beautiful winter kept
all ski club members active. And all members were deserving of the
party at the end of the skiing season.
The club, open to all members of the Gannon community, is one of
the more socially active clubs when the winter slump sets in. The ski
club definitely makes the winters at Gannon more bearable.

TELETHON GIFTS BOUNTIFUL
The 1976 Telethon raised more money than Gannon participants
expected. The Alumni donations were generous and bountiful, and the
amount of money donated to the college increased every day of the
telethon. The telethon is set up to raise donations from Gannon Alum-
ni. Volunteer workers call alumni all over the U.S. and ask for con-
tributions. The results: amazing and enjoyable.
DARYL HALL AND JOHN OATES
The talented team of Daryl Hall and John Oates performed at Gannon
College this year, and their excellent performance came as no surprise to

appealed not only to the college crowd, but listeners of all ages.

GANNON BASKETBALL TEAM:
DEDICATED AND DETERMINED
THE GANNON BASKETBALL TEAM
"NCAA - GANNON ALL THE WAY!" This and other similar cheers were heard echo-
ing throughout the hallowed halls of Gannon at the start of this basketball season. After 25-4
and a trip to Evansville last year, and many of the same performers returning, the outlook
was ecstatic, to put it mildly. On January 10, the Golden Ones were 10-1 and riding a 29-
game home winning streak. However, after that, it was all downhill. They lost 7 of their next
8 games, and all hopes of a return to Evansville were dashed. Final record: 16 - 11.
In all the disastrous times, there were a few shining lights. Big Stan Sligh lived up to
his pre-season billing. The Burly Junior from Alliquippa, Pa. averaged 17.1 points and 9.4
rebounds per game. His shooting touch was amazing and he showed more moves than one
would expect from someone 6 '7" and 245 pounds.
Another junior, Fate Harris, was outstanding in every game. Despite his relatively
small size for a college center, the 6 '5" New Yorker more than held his own under the boards,
averaging 10.2 points per game. His shooting percentage was .531.
With a roster loaded with Sophomores and Juniors, the future looks rosy for the Golden
Ones next season.
GANNONS HOCKEY TEAM
The incredible Gannon Hockey
Team played their games smoothly
and roughly. They were smooth
skaters streaking across the ice -
always in control and out for the puck
and a goal. But they were rough
players. No one underestimated this
team and people that did learned to
respect them. Rough on the ice - they
played for blood and always gave the
audience a crazy, entertaining and

SOCCER - THE WORLD'S MOST WIDELY PLAYED SPORT
While relatively new at Gan-
non, soccer has acheived a mild
degree of success. This year's 5-7-1
record doesn't tell the whole story.
The Knights were in all but three of
their games, with good defense and
excellent ball-handling. The
highlights of the season were a 2-0
whitewash of Behrend College and a
5-0 trouncing of Youngstown State
in the Gannon version of Homecom-
Spotlighting some of the Lancer standouts, Junior Aysar Susan led the team in scoring with li
points, Senior Bert Napoleon close behind with 10 points. Defensively, Junior goalie Jim Deming anc
backs Senior Jim Roome, Freshman Mike Griffin and Freshman Pasquale Fioretti kept the opponent
at bay much of the time.

The Women's Softball Team pitched steady, hit
hard, and ran fast. Composed of Gannon Women ex-
